For most people, getting to Hawaii involves an airplane ride -- and so does getting around within Hawaii. Hawaii Island Air, dba Island Air, serves several destinations throughout the Hawaiian islands. The carrier's fleet of about half a dozen turboprop aircraft consists of 37-seat Dash 8s, made by Bombardier. Island Air maintains a code-sharing arrangement with Hawaiian Holdings' Hawaiian Airlines, as well as with mainland-based Continental and United. (Code-sharing enable airlines to sell tickets on one another's flights and thus extend their networks.) In addition to its scheduled passenger operations, Island Air provides charter and freight services. Hawaii's Gavarnie family controls the company.
